Chinese Puzzle

Posted August 22, 2010 8:00 AM

Reports of dissatisfaction with labor conditions and wages are making their way out of China. Will this unrest have any impact on the country's recovery from recession? Or will the fact that most troubles are in "lower tech" industries minimize any impact on growth?

The preceding article is a "sneak peek" from Mechanical Power Transmission, a newsletter from GlobalSpec. To stay up-to-date and informed on industry trends, products, and technologies, subscribe to Mechanical Power Transmission today.

Can three sentences that say next to nothing attract readers to the Mechanical Power Transmission newsletter? Probably not, particularly since two of the three sentences are opposing questions based on nothing evident.

My apologies, but I get very annoyed by these "sneak peek" leaders that add absolutely nothing to the teasing blog title. By wasting my time with no to little information on the implied yet to be formulated article, you drive my interest away from this story.

"Will this unrest have any impact on the country's recovery from recession?"

Which country's recession?

China is not experiencing a recession, so, what has China's labor unrest got to do with the country that is experiencing a recession?

I guess this no sense blog is nonsense. Is this the reason why it is called Chinese puzzle? I just give everyone a GA. Sorry if you are too late.
